My pregnancy is high risk. Can I have a midwife?

Yes, midwifery care may well be an option for you.  Your public midwifery options may be limited as public hospitals will generally steer higher-risk women towards obstetric care.  However, private midwives can care for women of all levels of risk in consultation with an obstetrician for the issues that may need obstetric input.

Melissa Maimann is an eligible midwife in private practice in Sydney.  One of the first eligible midwives in Australia, Melissa offers a range of care options for women.  Visit Melissa's website to learn more about her services.
